Sachin Tendulkar – A Living Legend in Indian Cricket

“There are two kinds of batsmen in the world. One, Sachin Tendulkar. Two, all the others.” - Andy Flower

The State of Maharastra would come to a grinding halt if any untoward incident happens for two great personalities – Bal Thackeray and Sachin Tendulkar. Both are living legends but in different fields.

Sachin’s completion of two decades in cricket is a milestone for any player. He is a master blaster and master laster who survived for 20 years in a game called cricket especially where people come and go away from this sport in a short span. The secret of his success is very clear as he always reinvented himself with changing times. He has redrawn the rules of the game with creative strategies and techniques. No amount of his body pain and pressures deterred him from moving ahead. His first and last passion is only Cricket.

Sachin has an amazing talent with great humility. He remains cool and composed both in victory and defeat. His achievements and records are endless. He is highly focused and always believes in hitting the bulls’ eye. During course of cricket journey he shattered several stereotypes and overcame obstacles. Mark Taylor rightly commented, “We did not lose to a team called India … we lost to a man called Sachin Tendulkar.”

He contributed his best without any false ego and is a team player who says, “The important thing is to know your role and play according to the situation. To me, nothing has been more important than winning and whatever my team requires I will try my best to fulfill it.”

Sachin lives in the hearts of billion people across the world. He not only lives in the hearts of Indians but also in the cricket lovers across the world cutting across nationalities. We have been blessed with a great legend like Sachin who makes all Indians to hold their heads high. He says, “I would like to be remembered as someone who tried hard and always gave his best for the country.”

Let us congratulate and salute this living legend on completion of two decades of his dedication and contribution to the sport as well as to our country.

The End
